How to Tell How Much Propane Is in the Tank

How Much Propane Is In The TankNearly everyone has experienced the frustration of running out of propane while cooking on a grill, running a generator or using a lantern. At Northwest Propane, we are more than the best Dallas propane supplier. We also strive to help our customers learn about propane, including how to tell how much propane is in the tank, so that our customers can always be prepared.

The Process

Knowing how to tell how much propane is in the tank is as easy as a knowing how to do a little bit of simple math. Located on the side of every tank of propane are the letters TW, which is followed by a number. TW means tank weight, and it gives the weight when the gas tank is empty. Write down this number for later. Use a reliable scale to weigh your propane tank. Subtract this number from the TW number to get the approximate weight of any gas that remains within the tank.


Since every pound of propane has 21,600 BTUs, in order to find the total number of remaining BTUs, multiply the weight of the remaining gas by 21,600.


To find how much longer your tank has before dying, you need to determine the BTU output of any appliances that will be used. This information is usually easily located on the appliance manufacturer’s website. Divide your tank’s remaining BTU amount by your appliance’s hourly BTU consumption to get your number of remaining hours of propane when used by that appliance.

Simple Math is Good, We Are Better

Learning how to tell how much propane is in the tank may not solve your propane problems. Contact a Northwest Propane technician today at 800-274-6121 with any other questions you may have.



Never Run Out of Propane Fuel Again

Propane Tank RefillWhen you count on propane for cooking and staying warm during cold winter nights, you cannot afford to run out. However, it’s so hard to remember to call in your order for more propane. While companies like Northwest Propane Gas Company are proud to offer same-day service to refill your tank fast, it’s better to avoid running out of propane in the first place. With their Auto Fill/ Never Out program, you can trust that you will always have the gas you need.

Remote Monitoring

An experienced Dallas propane gas company understands the importance of remote monitoring of your propane levels. They use seasonal estimates to schedule refills at times when you are most likely to need them. However, you can also choose satellite fuel level monitoring to ensure that you never run out. Your delivery size will always be exactly what you need, and that allows you to get the best pricing on your propane gas refill.

Automatic Delivery

Whether you choose estimated deliveries or the exact science of remote monitoring by satellite, you can trust that your next delivery of propane will arrive before you run out. You will not have to deal with the trauma of running out of propane right before a storm hits, and you will always have the levels you need to make dinner or run the dryer.

Easier Budgeting

Another advantage of the automatic refill system is that it’s easier to budget. When you wait until the tank runs dry and then have to pay for a full tank, it can hit your budget hard. If you know that a delivery is coming once every three months, then you can set money aside for the payment. It makes it easier to keep your propane tank refill budget on track and fitting nicely with your household budget.

Make Northwest Propane Gas Company your propane supplier and you will never again have to worry about running out of propane. They have estimated use systems to ensure that your propane needs are met, or you can invest in satellite monitoring to maximize your refills.
